Formerly located at 20 West 57th Street, the gallery moved to the location 17 East 76th Street in January 2000. At the 57th Street location, a number of historical exhibitions were held. One of them, Giacometti's "Early Works in Paris," was selected by the International Association of Art Critics in 1994 as the second best gallery exhibition in the United States. Since moving to its previous location at 17 East 76th Street, the gallery features artworks as private sales. Yoshii Gallery will explore the relationship between Modern Masters and Oriental Antiques.

Nobuyoshi Araki | Sante D’Orazio
September 14th to October 21st, 2017
Yoshii Gallery is pleased to present Nobuyoshi Araki | Sante D’Orazio, an exhibition showcasing the renowned photographers’ iconic large-format works as curated by Sante D’Orazio.
He first met Nobuyoshi Araki in Tokyo, 2005. This trip was memorialized in D’Orazio’s 2012 self-published “ARAKI Tokyo and Me” photo book with photographs of the pair gallivanting around in Araki’s karaoke haunt alongside a traditional Japanese wedding held in a shrine – the book juxtaposes vice and virtue. It is no surprise then that both artists have gravitated towards each other, both of their works are lauded for the plethora of their highly stylized, hyper-sensual, beautiful and provocative images. They are receivers, not willfully imposing their personality, visions or ideals onto the world.
